Training Programmes for Leaders

Anatomy of a Team

Most people in work don’t realise that they are not, and have likely never been, on a fully-actualised team. Anatomy of a Team is designed to address one of the most common questions we hear from leaders in the course of our work: how can groups of talented people be converted into the high-functioning teams essential for sustained success through times of disruption?

Anatomy of a Team is a half-day seminar consisting of three interactive content sections that will challenge leaders to examine the status quo within their organisation. Solutions to the challenge of transforming groups into teams are crowdsourced and can be implemented immediately within the workplace following the workshop.

Anatomy of a Team objectives:

  • Break down the characteristics of teams versus groups
  • Help leaders identify if they are leading a team versus a group
  • Explain to leaders the benefits of transforming groups into teams
  • Explain the steps required to create teams
  • Highlight the benefits and behaviours that ensure long-term team integrity

People often erroneously assume a collection of elite individuals in any environment makes a team.

Anatomy of a Pep Talk

In Anatomy of a Pep Talk, leaders discuss how motivation is maintained in challenging times, and how that drive can be passed on to peers and direct reports.  Anatomy of a Pep Talk is a quarter-day interactive seminar and will prime participants with a clearer understanding of the basics of that ‘holy grail’ of the business environment – the nurturing of intrinsic motivation when times are at their toughest.

Anatomy of a Pep Talk objectives:

  • Discuss how leaders and conscientious colleagues maintain their motivation
  • Discuss how leaders can shore up the motivation of peers and direct reports
  • Address fears and stresses of teams in times if difficulty
  • Understand the blueprint for helping leaders engage with teams
  • Create on-going, quality communication rather than a one time ‘rousing speech’

A pep talk isn’t a motivational ‘sugar spike’, but rather a tool for sustained motivation.
